I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley east of Los Angeles, followed by a move up north to attend high school. I attended college in Northern San Diego county. After finishing my degree, I began my career in Undergraduate Admission working as an Enrollment Advisor and Admission Officer/Recruiter. It felt only natural to move back to Los Angeles and become a part of the Trojan Family. With roots in both Los Angeles and San Diego, I enjoy going to the beach, attending country concerts, and spending time with my Miniature Australian Shepard, Maddie.

Why USC?
USC highlights a diverse and inclusiveness community every individual should strive to be a part of. While walking through campus, you suddenly feel an inviting and encouraging spirit that is contagious. USC encourages one to challenge the status quo and step outside of their norm. Regardless of your demographic, one will instantly feel a connection and home within the Trojan family.

Admission Advice:
Never be afraid to challenge yourself on your path to educational attainment. You will instantly know when you step onto a campus whether or not this is your new home. Apply and visit as many college campuses as you can. Take advantage of every campus’s resources and push yourself to achieve your dream.
